While A&E's brand of original programming continues to grow after the success of 'Longmire,' one series we're particularly excited to check out is that of 'Bates Motel,' a prequel series to Alfred Hitchcock's famous film 'Psycho' that follows a young Norman Bates living with his mother. We've heard some pretty cool castings from the series, including Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga as the titular Bates family, but how would you like a first look at a young 'Psycho' killer in action? Check out the first photo of the new Norman Bates!
Whether or not you're interested to see A&E explore the psyche of one of movie history's most famous killers through the prequel series 'Bates Motel,' you've got to admit that Vera Farmiga would make one hell of a Mrs. Bates. The 10-episodes series will debut in 2013 with an as-yet-unknown cast of characters but now we can at least get a look at the face of Norman's tormentor. After all, the last time we saw her, she was just a skeleton!
